A MESS NEVER SEEN BEFORE
The big mess of the match took place before the game. Kick-off had to be delayed by 36 minutes due to difficulties in accessing the stadium, an unprecedented hiccup in the recent history of the C1 finals.
The pre-match was marked by scenes of chaos, with long queues, spectators shouting their anger and others trying to climb the gates surrounding the Stade de France, provoking the intervention of the police and the use of tear gas.
At 11:45 p.m., according to a first provisional assessment of the Ministry of the Interior there were in Paris and Saint-Denis “53 arrests and 24 police custody”, with 115 supporters slightly injured. The post-match dispersal nevertheless took place “without difficulty”.
UEFA explained the mess “by thousands of spectators who bought fake tickets that did not work“, while Liverpool asked for an investigation, reports AFP.
